What is remarkable is that this is a popular place. Crowded on a Sunday morning. Being busy it may take awhile to get seating. Sat at the counter. Big plates, you won't go hungry here. They had the champion steer and pig on the menu...More

We were in town for the eclipse, so they were slammed. I'm sure our experience isn't a normal one. The wait was long, and the food good, although nothing to rave about. If we find ourselves in Madras again, I'd go back.

My husband and I visited expecting normal service. The worst is what we had. It took a while to get our food that sat 5 minutes before the server left her phone. The rolls were hard and very stale. Not going back!!!

Black Bear Diners are consistently excellent, and this one is no exception. The service was attentive, friendly and very helpful, and the food was wonderful. As far as our server knew, this is the only Black Bear Diner franchise that doesn't serve alcohol. No problem...More
